Summary

Tom Savage signed a one-year $1.5 Million contract in March this year to be Drew Brees' back-up. Savage began the 2017 season as Houston's starting quarterback, but his mediocre play allowed the Texans to begin the Deshaun Watson era mid-way through the season opener. Savage returned following Watson' knee injury, but without much success and was placed on IR after suffering a concussion in week 14. Savage should not anticipate playing in 2018 since Brees is so reliable. (May 4)

Saints | Both NOLA backup QBs shaky is loss (Sat Aug 18, 01:34 AM) - New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill made the start in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17, against the Arizona Cardinals, but he committed a total of four turnovers. QB Tom Savage came on and completed 6-of-7 passes for 53 yards, although he was sacked three times. Both are competing with J.T. Barrett for the primary backup job behind QB Drew Brees.

Our View: Hill is a favorite of the coaching staff (and he can play special teams!) but he's got to play better if he wants to win the no2 job behind Brees. We'll continue to monitor him in dynasty leagues.
